Cedartown Theatrical Performer’s Company holding auditions for ‘Beauty and the Beast’

BeautyandtheBeast

Cedartown, Ga. – June 17, 2014: Happy Birthday, Cedartown Theatrical Performer’s Company!

The Cedartown Theatrical Performer’s Company is turning 10 this year. To celebrate, they’ve brought back a classic production that is sure to bring down the house.

In honor of their 10th anniversary, CTPC is having an open casting call for their summer revival production of “Beauty and the Beast.”

Auditions will be held on Friday, June 20, and Saturday, June 21, at the Cedartown Civic Auditorium from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m.

Come prepared to sing 16 bars of a song from the musical theatre repertoire (you may also sing from the show’s score), and be prepared to learn a short dance break.

They need a lot of cast members and a lot of singers, so if you consider yourself a great singer they want YOU to come out and audition. Even if you don’t want to be on stage, they can still use you in the ensemble off stage — so come audition anyway!

So just to recap:

Auditions: Friday, June 20 from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m.
Saturday, June 21 from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m.

Where: Cedartown Civic Auditorium
205 East Avenue
Cedartown, Ga. 30125
